In Pictures: Beyond Google Glass, wearable tech that will revolutionize business

From heads-up displays to implantable silicon, a brave new business world of innovative wearable tech is fast taking shape

SAP and Vizux: Heads-up data delivery Who says wearable technology is only for the digerati? Not SAP Vice President Paul Boril. The German software giant is teaming up with Vuzix, a developer of connected eyewear, to bring wearable technology to industry.

A forklift driver will soon don glasses connected to a smartphone on her belt that can access data from a server that is then displayed in front of her eyes. The glasses guide workers to products on their pick lists; once at the shelf, workers can scan the barcode to make sure they have the correct item and confirm that it has been picked. Boril says that energy companies, railways, and hospitals are also interested in this heads-up approach to delivering data.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
